Lyxor and Kingdon launch global long/ short equity fund

Lyxor Asset Management has teamed up with Kingdon Capital Management L.L.C. to launch the Lyxor/Kingdon Global Long-Short Equity Fund, thus continuing to expand its Alternative UCITS offering with the addition of Kingdon as the first global equity manager with daily liquidity on its UCITS platform.

With a performance history of more than thirty years, the investment team is led by five sector heads, supported by 20 specialized analysts.

Jean-Marc Stenger, Head of Investment Partners at Lyxor, commented: “We’re excited to launch Kingdon’s global long/short equity strategy on our Alternative UCITS platform. Approaching equity markets from the perspective of countries and industries is likely to gain importance in the years to come and bringing an expert such as Kingdon to the UCITS space will certainly benefit investors”.

Mark Kingdon, Founder and CEO of Kingdon, added: “Partnering with Lyxor demonstrates our commitment to adapting to the changing regulatory environment by offering investors in different jurisdictions access to one of our core alternative investment strategies.”

Founded in 1983, Kingdon is a global long/short alternative investment firm based in New York, N.Y. With over $2bn in fundamental equity and credit strategies, the firm benefits from sector focused expertise and global reach within a single portfolio structure and centralized supervision.

The Fund, which is now passported into 8 countries, is available on Lyxor’s Alternative UCITS Platform for a minimum subscription amount of $10,000 in EUR, USD, JPY, CHF, GBP, SEK, NOK and SGD. Not all share classes are available or registered for sale in all jurisdictions. Kingdon becomes the tenth fund on Lyxor’s fast-growing $2.4bn Alternative UCITS platform, illustrating investors’ growing appetite for liquid and transparent investment vehicles.
